London is near Bishop in southwestern Nueces County. It was named for Sam and Fanny London, who purchased the surrounding land from the King Ranch around 1909. A frame schoolhouse was built at the townsite in 1909, and a brick structure was erected in 1914. In the early 1990s the community had the school and a number of houses. Around that time high school students attended school in nearby Corpus Christi.
